On the move
While combining beans last week an area farmer spooked this 10-point buck from his hiding place among the weeds in a terrace. Upon arrival of a photographer, the big fellow and his female companion posed momentarily then took off on the run for a better place to hide. Currently, archers are the only hunters after them, but that will change on December first with the opening of the first shotgun season. With most of the crops harvested there are fewer places for them to hide and the animals are on the move, causing grief for many drivers who find them on the roadways.
